PALAKOLLU - KSHEERARAMAM

Antiquity

According to legend, Vupamanyu, the son of venerable Kausika Maharshi, one of the Saptamaharshis doing Saivaaradhana here once, solicited Maheswar for milk to making Ksheerabhisheka to Lord; for, milk was scarcely available in this region. Realising the request .reasonable, Lord Siva dug a tank with His potent Trident here and diverted milk from Ksheerasagara. It not only fulfilled Vupamanyu's wish, but also enabled people to get plentiful milk from that tank overflowing with it perennially. So it got the name of Palakota which in course of time became Palakollu. On account of the abundant growth of milk trees here, this primeval forest area was called Dhugdapovanam and also Vupamanyapuram due to dwelling of Vupamanyu here, and worshipping Siva according to legend. Later it was fortunate enough to be blessed with one of the five pieces of Sivalinga of Tarakasura, and it was called Ksheeraramam. The sacred Sivahnga receiving worship now was installed by Sri Rama in the Tretayuga. Hence doubly holy and greater attraction too. Srinatha's Bhimeswarapurana embodies and elaborate account of this kshetra and the sports of Siva.
